Wiring and Connections

The MINI2 Receiver is connected to a UART on the flight controller (GPS port) for data. To power the module you will need a separate 12V power supply. The pins on the 12-pin connector are numbered as shown below.

Configuration

For heading estimation the two antennas need to be on the same level and at least 30 cm apart from each other. The direction that they are facing does not matter as it can be configured with the GPS_YAW_OFFSET parameter.

Configure the serial port on which the MINI2 Receiver will run using GPS_1_CONFIG, and set the baud rate to 115200 using SER_GPS1_BAUD.

Once configured the receiver is used in the same way as any other RTK GPS (i.e. with respect to the Survey-in process).

Additional Information

The MINI2 incorporates the following components:

  • FB672: Compact, dual antenna, dual frequency GNSS OEM board (delivers centimeter accurate position and precise heading).
